A Hamilton man is $100,000 richer after matching the last six of seven Encore numbers in the exact order in the June 7, 2022, Lotto Max draw.
Andrew Yip, a married father of three, says this is his first big win.
“I randomly remembered I had a ticket in my pocket, so I checked it. When I found out I won, my mind went blank,” he shared while at the OLG Prize Centre in Toronto to pick up his winnings.
The 42-year-old contractor plans to take a trip, complete some home renovations, and invest his winnings.
The winning ticket was purchased at Gateway Gas Bar on Plains Rd. in Burlington.
Encore can be played in conjunction with most lottery games for an extra $1. There is a draw every day.insauga's Editorial Standards and Policies
